I am a lawyer who has practiced law for 14 years. Diane is an amazing lawyer. Her professionalism, knowledge of the law, preparedness and compassion make her an excellent attorney. Diane was the attorney who assisted my family for education advocacy within the public school system. There was no one else who could have handled this matter with a better outcome, and again, with more compassion. Diane is always 100% prepared for every hearing, meeting or other court action. Diane is ethical, zealous and concerned that she conclude a case with the best overall result for her client.

Diane is one of the most exceptional attorneys I have ever had the privilege to work for. Diane is committed to her clients and puts the needs of each individual child first in every situation. I highly recommend Diane for any family who needs help navigating the world of special education. Diane's knowledge of special education law is unmatched in the Oregon and Washington legal communities. Diane is the ideal ally when working with schools to establish individual plans to meet your child's needs while fostering strong relationships between the family and the school.

Diane receives my highest commendation for her superb work in a one of the most difficult environments to practice law in. I know Diane as a colleague (I'm a litigator) and as a client. She has successfully represented our 9 year old son, who has numerous special education needs which were not being met by the public school district. Diane's forceful yet professional intervention on his behalf was invaluable. The district has been far more willing to recognize our son's special learning style and his learning needs since Diane was retained as our advocate. I can't say enough good things about her ability and effectiveness. And a big plus: she is a pleasure to work with.

Relationship: Worked together on matter

Diane Wiscarson is a tenacious, thoughtful and determined advocate for students with disabilities and educational special needs. We have had several cases in common. In all instances, Diane effectively defended the child's needs and assured that the child was obtaining the services legally required and necessary for the child's overall social and intellectual development. In addition, Diane helps the parents understand and embrace the child's ability to advance despite the potential impediments.
